Well, no telling how Davis meant it. But I am not sure that I can say Mark May's words were over the top or too strong. However I would hope before he made them that he was better informed as to th nature of Davis's comments than the rest of us. Could be that Saban and Davis have a relationship that allows for the occasional barb. However making public national level comments that are non flattering at the least about your former boss who made nothing be positive public comments about you seems distasteful to me.

@ConnGator @JarrenBlake Many would, if it does happen you can believe that they will get in over even a 1 loss SEC team. Not saying I would agree with it or not, but it would happen. However, UK cannot use the conference as a scapegoat not to go out and ball, period. If Vandy and Ole Miss do not, neither does UK. Also they played Kentucky, and won, and its an early season game. So the grind of the SEC was not a factor in determining who won that game and was the better team. You can say Lousiville did not have the SEC slate, but they also lacked the SEC resources. There is no reason for the Kentucky program to have fallen behind like is has, save for bad coaching. My opinion is that a UK type school should schedule abit mroe competitively Out of Conference early in the year. If you take out some name teams in other conferences, even if just mid level teams, then you show that your not a doormat. Maybe you struggle in SEC but abroad you have some teeth.

Someone check Seth Emerson's medication. his solution to UGA's reluctance to play a 9 game schedule is to shit Bama and Auburn to the East with Missouri adn Vandy going to the west??? Listen I get that UGA is worried about loosing home games, but that money can be made up and the Florida Game does not HAVE to be a nuetral site game or the like. But the above change would destroy parity in the two divisions. SEC East of Bama, Aub, UGA, Tenn, USC, Florida, and Kentucky...poor Kentucky. No need to worry about home games. Your abysmal records will keep fans at home after a time. And who wants to let Saban into Georgia and Florida yearly?

The biggest issue in all thsi for Kentucky is that Louisville with Charlie Strong is getting it done. the went out and got an out of state QB phenom in Teddy Bridgewater, they have been coached up to play better all aroud football. And now they are winning games and going into an expected good year. Sure, they could flop, but that will not take away last year's success and Sugar Bowl victory. And this is a team located IN the state of Kentucky that did not have to give up or loss anything off of their high level Basketball program to do it.

Left and Right are both equally guilty of the above train of thought. By dealing in absolutes about the positions of the Left and the Right your making that plain as day. So lets keep it about sports and not divisive politics.

Someone working in the PA booth played "Son of a Preacher Man" and infamously "Take the Money and Run" while Cam was working out on field before the game. Employee was fired afterwards.
Just too dangerous of a hire. He wins, I get it, but he has made a loser out of every program that has dealt with him. And for ADs its not about winning, its about keeping their position, much like in politics. The whole Gene Chizik firing is overblown, it means only so much that he won that BCS title because when you look at his complete body of work, the recent 3-9 season is not the aberration, that title season is. And the 8-5 season preceding it had much more to do with lucky breaks than anything else. The Miss State game was razor thin and it was not the only one. Add to that numerous other factors that one can get into and it becomes a bit more understandable why it happened so soon.
There are other names and other good coaches out there, that top level programs like Tennessee should be gunning for and not need a Petrino hire. Heck just as easily go for Art Briles or Rich Rod(Only 1 yr at Arz St will make that difficult though). For Kentucky its something to think about, I grant you that. But so is the Cincinnati coach that could be looking to move to a more stable conference with the Big East constantly on the rocks.
